Democratic Sen. Joe Biden blasted the head of his own party on Sunday for his over-the-top outbursts, saying that Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean doesn't speak for him as well as most other Democrats he knows.
Asked about recent comments where Dean trashed Republicans as "evil" and said House Majority Leader Tom DeLay belongs in jail, Biden told ABC's "This Week": "He doesn't speak for me with that kind of rhetoric and I don't think he speaks for the majority of Democrats."
Asked if he thought Democrats needed to "rein [Dean] in," Biden said, "I don't presume to suggest that I could rein in any chairman. But I think that the response from the bulk of the elected Democrats - I don't imagine would be much different."
"I hope [Dean] listens," added the Delaware Democrat.
Go a little further there, Plugs, ...........Dean does not speak for the sane.
All I can say is "GO DEAN!"
Looks like they are ready to throw Dean from train.
Let the rats eat each other!
Wait 'til we get closer to the '08 elections. If Dean is still around, he'll have to be muzzled and put in a straight jacket.
DEAN, DEAN, DEAN, DEAN!!! YEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAGH!!!
"Looks like they are ready to throw Dean from train."
gosh, can you blame them?
Hey, the dem rats wanted this guy, they got him. This is their tar baby, made in their own image. I hope they enjoy. For the rest of us, say a prayer daily for the well being of howard nut, dean of the demo rat kooks. It's as if he is an RNC mole, installed by the RNC to inflict the maximal damage possible.
Dean's message is loved by the democrat base, but the democrat base, in general, doesn't have any money to contibute diectly to the party.
If Dean were effective in bringing in tons of cash, or if he had power, the Clinton Incident tells me they'd all defend him to Hell and back.
The more Dean opens his mouth, the better. My only fear about Dean is that he is such a wacko, such a cartoonish figure that it may end up helping Hillary as it will make the media's quest to make her the epitome and very essence of 'moderation' and 'centrism' that much easier by comparing her to this nut. I wouldn't even be surprised if Bill and Hillary aren't privately celebrating everytime Dean goes off on one of his insane rants.
......explaining, of course, his position as head of the DEMOCRAT NATIONAL COMMITTEE.
They don't breed 'em any dumber, do they?
Best analysis I've seen of Dean's tenure was on another FR thread yesterday. The poster opined that the "Toon" gang's sole reason for allowing Dean to get the job was to tee him up for a Hillary "Sister Soulja" moment. Looks like ol' Plugs is surfing FR and decided to pre-empt! I love the sound of Dims quarreling in the morning!
I'd bet not; fact of the matter is that Joe Biden is wrong...Dean DOES speak for the majority of the 'Rat party, as well as the red meat-loving press.
Hmmm,... I wonder if this little jewel will make the headline news like McVAIN did?!...NAY!
-I don't think he speaks for the majority of Democrats."-
Ya mean...you don't KNOW??
To be fair, Dean is a very unusual politico. He pulled the whole country together, RATS and Republican alike.
We ALL wanted him to be DNC Chairman.
